Sapa Un Student Attends Phillips Exeter Academy

Our very own Lydia Whirlwind Soldier, who originally began with Sapa Un Catholic Academy, is currently attending a five weeklong program. Please read below what her teacher Ms. Megan shared with us about Lydia's journey so far!


"As our school expands to eighth grade next year, we are starting to look for opportunities for our students to expand their horizons past our small school and gain experiences that will help them fulfill their dreams. One of our students received a scholarship to attend Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire for their five-week summer program. Here are some photos of her journey there (including a stop to see Chicago, New York, the beach, and her dream law school at Yale) and her first week at Exeter! Due to her interest in math and science and a possible career in engineering, she is taking 2-D & 3-D geometry, Fundamentals of Programming, and Robotics. It has certainly been a challenging journey for her first time away from family, but we are proud of you, Lydia!"
